PAINTINGS OF JAPANESE LIFE


I visited Japan in 2014 and, after travelling in the mountains in a campervan, spent several weeks in Kyoto. I’m planning many further paintings but these first works show some remarkable encounters in the historic streets of Kyoto. There I was intrigued to find trainee Geishas, known as Maikos, strolling with full make-up and in traditional costume practising their charming skills on the modern passers-by.
